My boyfriend and I will be in Germany for the holidays and are starting the planning a little on the late side. We'll be in Hof visiting family for Christmas but are looking for places off the beaten path to visit from December 29/30 through January 2/3. We're hoping to find some suggestions for locations with outdoor activites like hiking, cross country skiing, or downhill skiing that won't be crazy crowded and expensive. Not sure if the culture in Germany/ Austria is like the US where everyone flocks to the ski slopes during the holidays meaning we should find other activities to focus on. Would appreciate any suggestions in Bavaria, Austria or the Czech Repulic.
